I'm interested in how many sentai alumni Goukaiger can bring back.

Re: Power Rangers

I know! They should bring back Paul Schrier and Jason Narvy as the leads of the show, and it would be called Power Rangers: Bulk and Skull and Crossbones.

Heh, I remember one time when I was watching [Beetleborgs] my sister walked in. She saw Flabber (the ghost) on the tv and commented how he looked like Jay Leno. I wasn't familiar with Leno at the time but since then I came to realize how true that was.
Yeah, Flabber was like a cross between Jay Leno, the Genie from Aladdin, and Lorne from Angel... living in a haunted house... I still don't get it...

My personal favorite show though was V.R Troopers!! The theme song was awesome and I note the show as launching the career of soap opera star Sarah Brown (who I believe is the partner of Shuki Levy at least according to Wikipedia Sarah played Kaitlin Star.
Sarah Brown also played Tommy's love interest in a 3-part episode of Power Rangers Zeo. She was Tommy's rebound girlfriend after he got a dear John letter from Kimberly. Katherine set them up with each other despite her own feelings for Tommy. But Tommy/Heather ended up not working out because of the ol' superhero romance cliche where Tommy had to run out on her mid-date without explanation to repel a monster attack. She was actually pretty patient with it but he ended up doing it a LOT.

A new generation of Power Rangers must master the mystical and ancient Samurai Symbols of Power which give them control over the elements of Fire, Water, Sky, Forest, and Earth.
The 5 elements nature of their powers reminds me of Saban's original medieval PR-ripoff, Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog.

I think there was an element of Elvis impersonation in there too. And I think I was reminded a little bit of the Joker. Though I don't recall the character too well; I found him too repulsive to watch and I've tried my best to forget everything about him.

Which was shortly after VR Troopers ended; it was probably something of a consolation prize. The lead male actor from VRT also did the voice of Trey, the first Zeo Gold Ranger (dubbing over the voices of the triplets who played the unmorphed character, an alien who could split into three selves).

Speak for yourself. It's clunky and overthought, with a bad rhythm. A title like Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a nice, regular trochaic meter, the sort of thing that makes for a catchy title, but Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad has an irregular meter that makes it cumbersome to the ear and the tongue alike. And it's simply overlong as well. And the misspelling of "cyber" is obnoxious.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that one. That was the most interesting and ambitious of the PR knockoffs -- rather than doing it on the cheap like all the others, they took advantage of their success with PR and invested the profits in doing a wholly original, well-produced, fairly high-budget show. They shot it in Ireland, assembled a respectable cast, tried to do intelligent scripts, even hired Foundation Imaging to create their special effects. It was an impressive effort, an attempt to level up in sophistication.

Unfortunately, it didn't entirely work. Since it was a kids' show and bloodshed was forbidden, the frequent swordfights always had to be halfhearted and inconclusive, which undermined the effectiveness of the stunt work. And the climactic action scenes were usually just the four heroes standing still and firing their magic weapons at some airborne CGI creature, which was quite static and rather boring to watch, as well as quite repetitive. Mystic Knights worked well in every respect except the action, which is a problem in an action show.

Re: Power Rangers

Goukaiger's cameo revealed!









They're catchphrase is

"Here we come to invade your world, Earthlings!"

or

"Don't get in our way, Earthlings!"



So for pirate enthusiasts yes they're not all that good.

Re: Power Rangers

It's the 35th anniversary of sentai. Goukaiger is going to use past Red's mecha as auxiliary mecha. Already confirmed are

SPD
Magiranger(Mystic Force
Gaoranger AKA Power Rangers Wildforce (which will double as a samurai formation)


They're also going to use ranger keys(all red rangers) to change into past heroes

First post has collected information so far

Re: Power Rangers

Okay, for the Power Rangers audience, SPD is self-explanatory, Magiranger corresponds to Mystic Force, and Gaoranger was Wild Force.

Re: Power Rangers

Will any past actors come back, or is it a "borrow their powers without actually having to pay the older actors to perform" kind of thing?

Re: Power Rangers

Past actors are rumored to come back. The Goukaiger's will travel to past sentai's worlds/universes.

Some teams will apparently feature new team members. Obviously since time has past.

A run down of which actors are active in show business
